Hey! Thanks for joining me! My name is Lauren. I am an elementary school teacher turned full time mom.
I have been married for nine years and adore my two boys. I love being home with my children but do miss the classroom. Having children allows for many teaching and learning opportunities! I incorporate my teaching techniques and love for reading into our daily activities.
The Smile Lines is an education blog, where I share hands-on learning activities and literary ideas for toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary aged children. Blogging allows me to incorporate my creative teaching style with my creative mom style.
The mission of the Smile Lines is to make parents and teachers lives easier by providing tools for a strong childhood education.
The Smile Lines is primarily education based, but you will see the Mom Corner. This is a place where I share my thoughts, experiences, and moments in time. I will share more about me in the Mom Corner and sometimes go on and on! I have a bad habit of doing that!
I often think I am on a secret reality show because random things happen to me! VERY random!! I got hit by a ceiling fan once as I was standing in a restaurant. It literally fell off the ceiling onto my face! I am ok, but it was NUTS!! That is just an example of my reality show life!!
I am obsessed with the beach. I love the smell of the air, sun in my face, sand in my beach bag! Haha! Everything about it! I love chilly September days on the beach in sweatpants and socks!
I started dating my husband when I was 16 years old in JAPAN! The funnier part is that we were on a school trip and actually lived two miles away from each other! You never know!!
I love watching sad shows. Crying, ugly tears, awful storylines… Those are my favorites!
I am excited to have you here and hope to share many learning experiences together!
